Hellgate: London

For those who haven’t heard, the Hellgate: London servers will be taken offline on January 31, 2009. It makes me pretty sad. The game had a bad launch and was buggy, but even with all those bugs, I played it for a while at launch and enjoyed it! Now the bugs are removed. Why is it doing so badly? It’s not the best game I’ve played, but it was fun. I also really enjoyed Mel Odom’s novels based in the Hellgate: London universe. His writing’s flawed (and rushed), but they were fun reads. The third and final book in his trilogy recently came out. It left me wanting more at the end. I felt like it didn’t really close everything I wanted closed. Hopefully someone will write more, but I’m very confident it’ll happen. Anyways, I do hope to finish Hellgate: London with my online character before the servers go offline, and I definitely could see myself playing more LAN Hellgate in the future!
